Comments: The upper part of the arête section seems unclimbable, at least at 12b.

Comments: Read the protection, you place a sling around the horn/flake, then downclimb and head out right on the weekness. After a couple of hard moves it gets easy to the bolt which I replaced a few years ago.

Comments: This is a two star route. I've led it again twice in the last couple weeks and it will get your heart pounding. To call it a bomb is a travesty.

Comments: Some sport weenie left large tick marks the entire way up to the first set of anchors. Really poor style in such a beautiful place or anywhere. Please clean up your tick marks.

Comments: Great, thin edge crankin. Very good ground up bolt job, spicy, but safe with an attentive belay. Been years since I was on this route and it seemed hard then and now. Real 12a.

Comments: leg breaking potential has nothing to do with difficulty. V0+=5.10+ which seems appropriate.

Comments: I've led this route at least twice Dover. The flake climbing is about 5.8 and I just ran it out to the second bolt. If you can lead .11 Suicide slab, you better be confident soloing 5.8.

Comments: Some PI at the base, bring the Roundup
Edit:PO is correct. There is actually quite a bit of PO in this area, only in the shade.

Comments: Javelin is definitely not 10c as it is way harder that anything on FreeLance. Pretty much unprotected crux off the ground, 11a at least. I've led it a couple of times. Bring a pad or have a good spotter and don't fall.

Comments: The pin was removed on Saturday and came out quite easily. It was a very small lost arrow. Bomber gear very close to where the pin was but small and probably not around when this climb was put up. I talked to Matt Beebe about this route and he thought it was around 12c when he tried it years ago. It is hard but so is 12a/b.

Comments: Been working on this one the last few weekends to no avail. The next two moves from the picture I posted are even harder than the first two moves, that are desperate. Need cool temps and tips of steel for this one.

Comments: Desperate smearing. V3+ if its in the 60's. Just gets harder as the temps rise.
